"If you voted for obama because he's black, you're a racist."

Is referring to Obama as a "chimp" a racist remark?

I don't believe so.
Let me first say, I am in no way condoning the obnoxious runaway posting of Mr. oh-um-...whatever.I find his posts annoying. I personally haven't posted myself in some time, preferring to just lurk and read the posts, but lately I find myself just skipping the forum entirely because it has strayed so far off topic (the Grateful Dead--remember them?).
As for the "chimp" reference, I don't see that as racist in itself. Remember the last clown was likened a chimp and such for 8 years-- my favorite example being the medical marijuana episode of The Simpsons, where Homer said something to the effect of "I could blow smoke right in his monkey-face, and there's nothing he can do about it.".
I guess I'm just saying, there's enough real racial trouble, that one needn't go looking for more where it doesn't necessarily exist.Make of this what you will. I'm going back to the LL shout box. I'll check back here in a day or so to see if this is a Dead forum again.

Yeah...all depends on context...just like the N word being freely used by the brothers I used to play ball with in Oakland, BUT wow what would've happened to me if I had dared to utter it to one of them.

As I said above, I was clutching at straws...desperate!

After I had posted, I read yours. I see where you were going with it- a means to hasten the troll's expulsion.
When I had crafted my response my main focus was elsewhere. I was thinking only of that slippery slope of "crying wolf" about racism. I was championing free speech not the poster.
I would gladly defend your honour Sir Tell, if someone were to scrutinize your use of "brothers". I'm sure you referred to siblings.
ANYWAY, I'm off to figure out which source of today's Watkins Glen show to listen to.
Hopefully today we can all concentrate on the music.

My bad.

Hey now Daddy! That is heart warming news. Our 2 kids truly rule our little world here, and we wouldn't have it any other way.

Please email a link for the new photography site. My bro-in-law(photographer as well)has just completed his web-site, which I'm sure you'd enjoy.

Congratulations, best of luck and good health to you and the mommy-to-be.

That is GREAT news Ian! You're going to be a great dad; I can just imagine the adventures in the wild outdoors the two of you will have over the yrs...and of course, it will change everthing, all at once. When mine were younger the word that came best to describing it was: RELENTLESS. Not judging it one way or the other (of course all of it is "good"), just the fact of how much time and energy is devoted to the ultimate activity for any of us, period (raising the kids).

Hmmm--nice name for a girl. Of course, I could suggest "William Tell..." (twofer: first and middle!), but that would be a little too close to the Welsh...perhaps "Kevin", or "Michael", or "Keith"...?

Enjoy it my friend!

Lots of them folks in Kalifornia too. Some black bears wind up dead; because eating Yogi's nutts makes their dicks hard as shark fin soup does. I can turn on the news and hear about those foreigners getting busted by Fish & Game wardens on occasion...

Anyone who consumes threatened species in order to be more virile is a gook in my book, regardless of whether they are Asian or not! And anyone consuming endangered Sun Bear paws or gall bladders, or Tiger penises for that matter, is a stupid chink! Sorry Ian...

hi, cliff

i don't have the time or energy to go back and forth on this one... but, from where i stand a racist remark is simply that whether you attach a cutesy photo or not.

continued good luck in the open waters.

Eating an animal's dick; so a man can get a boner, sounds awfully gay to me. Maybe these third world perverts would knock it off if the rest of us called them homos and f------.

Damn...musta missed that. Oh well, I was clutching at straws, eh?

You know me...you were the one that encouraged my "lets just try to get along" post all the way back in 06 when Dire was the real old timer, but we were both pretty naive back then...

Hope all is well my Irish friend!
